Most every Sunday, we try to post an image of old posters that we find during online surfing. We enjoy the ones that reflect farming, gardening and/or food preservation and rationing. We enjoy them because we often wonder if anyone today would heed the kind of advice they gave back then...enjoy!
|Corn at Every Meal, vintage poster image courtesy of Wikicommons|
This poster image is from WWI. It's purpose was to remind people how healthy and nutritious corn products were. The reason is that during the war, regular items like sugar, flour, oil, etc were being pushed to the troops who were fighting overseas. This meant there was a shortage back in the states, so people used corn as the 'at home' replacement. Serve some way at every meal!
Unfortunately, in many cases today, corn IS served in some way at every meal...high fructose corn syrup!
Hope you are having a good weekend...we're finally back to a clear day, and pretty cool, but the farm is definitely waterlogged. Open house again later today. We are so ready to sell and move on to the next phase of our life (the apartment) so that we can finish things at the farm. These weekends are interfering with plans at the farm. Send some good "sale" vibes!
More later this afternoon/evening!
